Goodwin Liu: Hypocritical Grievance Monger

Ed Whelan at Bench Memos lays out the obvious conclusions after providing remarks Liu once made about reparations for slavery (like a good liberal, he's all for them):
Let’s expose the game that Liu is playing. Just as Liu completely ignores the innocent victims of racial preferences when he urges the perpetual imposition of racial quotas as a remedy for “societal discrimination,” so he would make those who were not complicit in slavery pay the price of his grandiose reparations project. Moreover, he continues to use the term “segregated” so expansively that only the imposition of racial quotas will achieve the elimination of what he calls segregation.
Needless to say, Senate Republicans need to filibuster Liu's nomination.
